Thats Crazy.  The bad thing is now someone is going to try and beat that record.  Eventually the luck jar runs out as far as escaping a ticket or accident.  


Ran into a freight guy one time that he and a buddy for extra cash in the days of hand written log books would drive from Utah to Tennessee and back pulling a set of doubles.  They would leave on Friday night and make it back home in time for work on Monday morning.
